I spent my day doing my usual things, got all my household chores done, got the evening dinner simmering in the crock pot. Then, I waited anxiously for Dirk to come home. I was really looking forward to going out with him.
Well, by going out, I actually mean going to the grocery store.
Hear me out on this one.
So, here’s the deal. Dirk and I have figured out that the local grocery store is really the cool place to be. They play the best music,( Tonight we listened to Iggy Pop, Billy Idol and some Amy Winehouse. Last week I heard Cyndi Lauper and Dexy’s Midnight Runners) they have awesome food, lots of beer and alcohol options, and there is rarely a line for the loo.
The past year has brought so many changes to our lives. Exciting times. It’s only natural that things would start to settle down, somewhat.
As we were dancing around the Rewe tonight, we realized that we may have hit a certain point in life, a certain age.(The age where you can hear all of your favorite music in the grocery store)
We realized that there is no turning back, only moving forward, and we will do this together while dancing to our music at the local grocery store.
Dirk and myself. No longer thin, or young, but still seriously happy.
How about you? Has there been a pivotal moment in your life where you realized that you were…old? Where were you when it happened?
